Mike Trout went 1-for-3 with a triple, a walk and a run scored in Friday's win over the Rangers.

Trout came through with his triple in a clutch spot, with the game tied at 1-1 in the ninth inning. Once on third, he was subsequently singled home by Albert Pujols as the Angels scored a crucial win. The 24-year-old outfielder's hitting a typically brilliant .297/.400/.587 with 41 homers, 89 RBI and 11 steals this season.

Mike Trout went 3-for-3 with two walks, a solo home run, and a stolen base, but the Angels still couldn't beat the Athletics on Wednesday.

Trout opened the scoring in the third inning with a solo home run. The Angels would be unable to bring him home any of the other four times he reached base. Trout nears the end of an MVP-caliber regular season batting .299/.402/.589 with 41 home runs, 89 RBI, 101 runs scored, and 11 stolen bases.
Sep 30 - 11:02 PM

Mike Trout hit a two-run homer, his 40th of the season, and the Angels edged the Astros 4-3 on Tuesday.

Trout hit the two-run blast in the first inning, his only hit in three at-bats. It's the first time in his career that he's reached the 40-homer plateau, interesting considering he's trending toward arguably his worst all-around season to date. Of course, that's taken with a grain of salt, as the superstar outfielder is batting .293/.395/.584 with 87 RBI, 95 runs and 10 steals with a handful of games left to play.

Mike Trout homered twice and walked three times Thursday as the Angels overcame a 5-0 deficit to beat the Twins 11-8.

Trout is well behind in the MVP race now, especially with the team floundering around him, but this would have been quite a statement game had the Angels been a few more games over .500. Trout's first homer was his fourth career grand slam, and it moved him past last year's total of 36 for a new career high in homers. He has five homers in September after hitting just one in August.
Sep 18 - 12:18 AM

Mike Trout went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run as the Angels edged the Mariners on Tuesday.

Trout's blast in the sixth inning off of Felix Hernandez proved to be the deciding factor in the game. It's his 36th of the year, tying last year's total, a career-high. The outfielder is batting .294/.396/.576 with 78 RBI, 90 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases.

Mike Trout went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts as the Angels dropped Monday's game to the Dodgers.

Trout had hit safely in each of his previous five games. There has been some concern that a wrist issue contributed to a weak second half of August, but he denied any injury. He's posting elite numbers as usual, batting .294/.394/.575 with 34 home runs, 76 RBI, and 88 runs scored.
Sep 8 - 1:14 AM

Mike Trout went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two RBI in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Trout homered off Rangers starter Colby Lewis to open the bottom of the first inning. He would add a sacrifice fly in the next frame, as the Angels were batting around Lewis like a freewheeling kitten playing with a ball of yarn. The reigning AL MVP is posting a typically strong triple-slash of .298/.397/.581 with 34 homers, 76 RBI, 88 runs scored and 10 steals.
Sep 6 - 6:42 PM

Mike Trout went 4-for-4, finishing a home run shy of the cycle in Sunday's loss to the Indians.

Trout came to the plate in the eighth inning needing a home run to complete the cycle, but settled for an RBI single which cut the Angels' deficit to 8-2. The outfielder came into the game with a .627 OPS in August, but he insisted on Saturday that his lingering wrist issue wasn't an impediment. The MVP candidate boasts a .298/.397/.581 triple-slash line with 33 home runs, 74 RBI, 81 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases.
Aug 30 - 3:58 PM

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with an RBI triple in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Trout tried his darnedest to keep the Angels afloat, hitting an RBI triple in the first off Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey and finishing with three hits, but the team simply didn't have the proper offensive firepower. Trout doing a bunch of cool stuff in losses has morphed into a sad theme for the 63-61 Angels. The reigning AL MVP is hitting .297/.394/.586 with 33 home runs, 73 RBI and 10 steals this season.
Aug 23 - 7:07 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in Thursday's loss to the White Sox.

Trout rocked the Angels first--and only--extra-base hit of the game when he doubled home a run against White Sox starter Jose Quintana in the first inning. He would later add a single to finish 2-for-3. While he's hitting just .169/.308/.262 in August, he remains a top-flight AL MVP candidate thanks to a superb .297/.394/.588 triple-slash, plus 33 homers, 72 RBI and 10 steals.
Aug 21 - 1:40 AM

Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in Friday's loss to the Royals.

Trout's RBI double off Royals starter Danny Duffy in the first inning gave the Angels a 1-0 lead. They would lose 4-1, which tells you well enough how the offense went for the rest of the game. The double was Trout's 22nd of the season and he's hitting a typically brilliant .303/.398/.603 with 33 home runs, 71 RBI and 10 steals. Another MVP award could be in the offing soon enough.
Aug 15 - 12:47 AM

Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with a walk and a double in Monday's loss to the White Sox.

Trout doubled and was stranded in the first inning, then led off the fourth with a walk and was stranded once more. The defending AL MVP maintains a lofty .304/.397/.611 triple-slash line with 33 home runs, 69 RBI, 78 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases.
Aug 10 - 11:08 PM

Mike Trout went 2-for-3 with his 33rd homer and two walks as the Angels topped the Orioles 8-4 on Friday.

Trout remained one homer ahead of Nelson Cruz for the major league lead. He entered the night in a 1-for-20 drought, which rates as one of his worst slumps of the year. One more bad game and his OPS would have fallen under 1.000.
Aug 8 - 1:40 AM

Mike Trout went 3-for-4 with a homer, a triple and three RBI against the Dodgers on Friday.

The Angels had six hits in the loss, all of them coming from Kole Calhoun and Trout. At least they were hitting back-to-back, so the Angels did manage three runs. It wasn't enough, though. Trout now has 32 homers in 99 games, leaving him just four shy of last year's career high.
